New Year update from my desk... and some news from Graphic 45!

Happy New Year, to all my friends here on Blogger-world. ♥

I hope you all enjoyed the fun and festivities that come with the holidays. I know I sure did! ♥ Unfortunately, it will soon come to pass. I took 2 1/2 weeks off from work this holiday... and it felt GREAT to just relax and spend time with my boys. ♥ But come Monday, I'm back to the grind!

Anyhow, this holiday, we spent Christmas with my family and it was memorable as always! We have family traditions that make the time even more special... like the yummy steak and eggs that my Dad ALWAYS cooks for us after Christmas Eve children's mass. Here's a picture of my Dad, with my younger brother, cooking up a storm..

Here's a peek at me and my family, taken at my parents' place on Christmas Eve...

Here's my little Yorkie Nala in her Christmas dress (LOVE IT! ♥)

Today, we took the boys to the local snow park and they had so much fun! 
We can't wait to go back with their cousins & Uncles...

Well, that's it for the personal update... ♥

Now for some FUN, crafty stuff...

I'm sure you've already heard about the brand NEW Graphic 45 products coming soon to your local scrapbook store. But, in case you haven't, I highly recommended stopping over at the Graphic 45 blog to check out the latest sneak peeks of the new paper collections and Staples products. One word --- WOWZA!! Wait, is that a word? If not, it really should be a word, because really... WOW-ZA!!

Here's a peek at the new French Country paper collection...

Here's the new Secret Garden paper collection...

Dying yet? OMG, when I first saw these collections, I sure was! ♥

Be sure the visit the Graphic 45 blog over the next day or so because they will be sneak-peeking the new Staples products! To top it off, if you simply comment on the sneak peek G45 blog posts, you could enter your chance to win some of these NEW products!! ♥

Here's a video I put together of my latest G45 design team package. In this video, I share an up close look at the new French Country and Secret Garden paper collections. Love, love! ♥
